Gratitude to Lucile, Noble & Liberty Bay Books

This week, we received some wonderful donations. Lucile & Noble Nilsen arrived with 31 new quilts for us to donate to the hospital.
Thank you, Lucile & Noble!
After they had unloaded their bags of quilts, we went through the donation of fabric and batting stash from Ruth & Greg B. Lucile & Noble then packed that into their car, along with satin blanket binding, and Lucile is ready to sew some more.
Have I mentioned that Lucile makes a quilt nearly every day? She inspires me!

I stopped by Liberty Bay Books yesterday, because owner Suzanne Droppert told me she had two new knitted blankets to donate, made by the wonderful ladies in her knitting group. They meet in the bookstore in downtown Poulsbo, and everyone knits a square (or more). Then they connect the squares and make a large blanket out of them. Here are the lovely blankets which they made together:

Suzanne has also kept a
Seattle Children's Cancer Advocacy Network Donation can at Liberty Bay Books for us since September.
Yesterday, I collected $57.75 from the can!
Thank you, Suzanne and Liberty Bay Books' customers/friends!
